Yuko and the Rites of Japanese Summer
Japanese summer is the season that's full of festivals. All around Japan there are festivals of all shapes and sizes. However, the three main festivals are the Gion Festival in Kyoto, the Amatsukami Festival in Osaka and the Kanda Festival in Tokyo. The Gion and Amatsukami festivals are so big, they're basically the ones that kickoff all the other festivals of the summer.
